Bill Aims To Boost Organ Donors Through New Registry
A new bill (SB 1395), by Sen. Elaine Alquist (D-Santa Clara), would require California driver's license applicants to answer a question about organ and tissue donation before they can receive their licenses. The bill also would establish a "California Living Donor Registry." Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), whose office drafted the legislation, joined Alquist and Apple CEO Steve Jobs to unveil the proposal on Friday.
